Reding Says EU May Move Against Hungary on Legal Changes

The European Union will probably start infringement procedures against Hungary after signaling “serious concerns” about the erosion of the rule of law following a disputed amendment to the constitution.

“The commission is working on a thorough legal analysis which will lead probably to infringement procedures and this will happen rather quickly,” European Union Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding told reporters in Brussels today.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the 27-nation bloc, said on April 12 that it had “serious concerns over the compatibility” of the country’s most recent constitutional amendment with the EU’s laws and values.
